An Ideal Student Instrument

The Yamaha YAS280 is generally regarded as one of the best student horns on the market. For getting started and even as a budget horn for a more advanced player, these are an ideal choice.


The YAS280 is a sax which really stands out from the pack when it comes to student horns. With its smooth keywork, easy blowing character and overall responsiveness this is a sax which is very hard to beat. Add to that the Yamaha 4C mouthpiece included as standard, rugged build quality, a good quality case and the fact they hold their value exceptionally well, this is very much the instrument of choice in its price range.

    This is a great student model horn, i bought this for my nephew a while back, he loves, much better than his jupiter 567 (bad intonation). This was a really good present for him, he really liked it am i am sure any starter will to.

    My Yamaha has taken me right from Grade 1 through to Grade 8 and it still performs just as well as it did for Grade 1 at Grade 8, which is something a lot of "student" saxes cant do. I found that once Ive tuned it up, it never goes out of tune which is always very helpful! The tone we produce is of a very high quality, bearing in mind its considered a students saxophone and we use the Yamaha 4C Mouthpiece which is plastic! I would really recommend it if you are looking to buy a consistent, accurate and beautiful saxophone- Ive seen lots of different saxes and in terms of looks it is also definitely one of the nicest ones available! And after 5 years of having it, it still plays perfectly- producing a pure and stunning tone!
